Once Daredevil became the instant success that it was and was renewed for a second season, fans began to speculate who could appear and what stories will be told. A few weeks ago, Marvel announced that Jon Bernthal has joined the cast as the Punisher.
This announcement led to the internet speculating what role the famous anti-hero will play. According to a new report from Nerdist, he will be the main villain for the majority of season 2. Here is what they had to say,
A Nerdist news source has confirmed that new show co-runner Marco Ramirez is referring to season 2 as “Daredevil versus the Punisher”
This is an interesting direction for the show to take but one that will probably not last for the entire season. With Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin (Vincent D’onofrio) currently in jail, Hell’s Kitchen will be without a true leader of crime. There have already been rumblings that Bullseye and Elektra will appear as well in season 2, but there has yet to be any official casting. Both of these iconic characters could present big problems for Daredevil. Plus, there is also a possible encounter with The Hand awaiting our hero in season 2.
Could the Punisher take matters into his own hands and kill some of these threats and lead to conflict between him and Daredevil? We will have to wait and see until season 2 of Daredevil hits Netflix sometime next year.
